Summary: Alternative solutions are needed for our healthcare system to cope with a large increase in the aged population. This project pioneers an assistive healthcare infrastructure aimed at reducing system costs and improving the quality of life of Australian citizens. In our innovative solution, an end user is monitored non-intrusively and essential health information about her/him is kept in an active health record which becomes alive when action is necessary concerning the person s condition. The successful outcomes will provide a cost effective framework for assistive healthcare, enable novel care services, advance the technologies involved, and allow the creation of a reliable evidence base about a person s wellness for policy development.
